Soundgarden - Slaves & Bulldozers Lyrics




Every word I said is what I mean
Every word I said is what I mean
Everything I gave is what I need
Virgin eyes and dirty looks
On what I have and why I took
Counting all the hands I shook
Now I know why you've been shaking
Now I know why you've been shaking
So bleed your heart out
There's no more rides for free
Bleed your heart out
I said what's in it for me
Everything I've held is what I've freed
Everything I've held is what I've freed
Everything I've shown is what I feel
Burying lies and stealing jokes
And laughing every time I choke
Biding all the time you took
Now I know why you've been taken
Now I know why you've been taken
So bleed your heart out
There's no more rides for free
Bleed your heart out
I said what's in it for me

    ...Deep Purple, and then after listening to Ian Gillans' vocal acrobatics on Child In Time, had to visit Chris too. You know.

  5. Scotty Dog

    This was one of the best music era that motivated me to buy hi.watts and Jbl studio monitors! Ended too soon.

  6. Scott A

    The vocals are obvious. But that Bass. Jesus Christ in heaven thats a dirty bass player

  7. mike jones

    profound moving humanist lyrics

  8. Michael Nasim

    This riff reminds me of Breaking Bad.

  9. Benjamin Morris

    This song is owsem!

    Chris Cornell's vocals are this are just fierce

  12. Josh Searing

    another badass old song

  13. Seth Krantz

    This may be his best vocal performance. Truly one for the ages. We miss you, Chris.

  14. Matt Ortman

    Nobody sang better than Chris. Much respect to the Seattle scene from Cleveland. Soundgarden is so good. Miss you Chris

  15. Jacob Bronson

    One of the hardest songs to sing all the way through without strain. His range is a freak of nature..

  16. Joseph Miller

    When I mention this song and people go ??????,I no longer speak to them. Stay listening to good music my friends.

  17. Mike Hamilton

    I love AIC but Layne did not have as good of voice as Cornell.

  18. Ray Lewis

    Hi, Chris and band.

  19. Stephen Fenton

    my girlfriend: "this is depressing music, he just makes sad music, nothing good or uplifting"..
    Me"Bitch, he is making music for you, me and the pain of the world... if you cannot hear that, please join the pile of Vermilliion"

  20. Stephen McQueen

    I saw them on this tour in Memphis with Guns n Roses
    Pretty sure it was this record

  25. RetroGK 2000

    I love sooo many Soundgarden songs but the vocals in this song give me goosebumps. When you think he's screaming his lungs out he shifts it into high gear and really kicks the shit out of all and sundry.

  73. Jon S

    The best drinking song EVER

    Too cool for the room

    A good drinking song yes.....but the best is Blow Up The Outside World.  Drink every time he says Blow Up.  About a 2 beer song.  Gotta do the album version and not the video version...more blow-ups at the end.  Cheers and bottoms up man!

    5:15 epic

    First time I've heard of Chris Cornell. Wasn't really my kind of music, still my respect to him and his talent. R.I.P Chris Cornell.

  77. Andre Sihotang

    Soundgarden and Alice in Chains to me are always the best grunge bands. But Nirvana and Pearl Jam got more spotlight.

    Top This!

    Nirvana was like kiddie punk music, soundgarden is grown man music.

  78. Chad Pittman

    Slaves and bulldozers
    Every word I said is what I mean
    Every word I said is what I mean
    Everything I gave is what I need
    Virgin eyes and dirty looks
    On what I have and why I took
    Counting all the hands I shook
    Now I know why you've been shaking
    Now I know why you've been shaking
    Now I know why you've been shaking
    Now I know why you've been shaking
    So bleed your heart out
    There's no more rides for free
    Bleed your heart out
    I said what's in it for me, what's in it for me
    Everything I've held is what I've freed
    Everything I've held is what I've freed
    Everything I've shown is what I feel
    Buying lies and stealing jokes
    And laughing every time I choke
    Biding all the time you took
    Now I know why you've been taken
    Now I know why you've been taken
    Now I know why you've been taken
    Now I know why you've been taken
    So bleed your heart out
    There's no more rides for free, yeah
    Bleed your heart out
    I said what's in it for me, what's in it for me
    What's in it for, what's in it for
    Every word I said is what I mean
    Everything I gave is what I need
    Everything I've held is what I've freed
    Everything I've shown is what I feel
    Virgin eyes and dirty looks
    On what I have and why I took
    Counting all the hands I shook
    Now I know why you've been shaking
    Buying lies and stealing jokes
    And laughing every time I choke
    Biding all the time you took
    Now I know why you've been taken
    By soundgarden

  79. Chad Pittman

    The last song Chris ever performed

  80. UNKNOWN PERSON

    only soundgarden can smash this tempo with such heavy deep grunge carnage

  81. Fergal Quigley
